Well.... first of all.... Zack and I qualified for our concealed carry permit this past weekend! Zack has wanted to take this class for some time and I thought it would be fun to take it together! We have a friend from church that teaches the class so we coordinated with him to put it on the calendar. I was so nervous about the written test and the actual shooting to qualify but I am proud to say I passed both parts and even had all thirty rounds land on the target! It was an educational experience for sure!
While we were away for the day, Grammy entertained the boys at the neighborhood playground and around our house! It was fun getting picture updates throughout our class.
Here is the room I am working in.... "shelter"....our bible story is from Acts 3 which talks about the lame beggar that is given the ability to walk through the power of Jesus Christ bestowed on the disciples.... we reenact the scene at the temple (hence why the temple appears in our island ship-wrecked adventure).
We have also fit in dinner with the Williams family at a local park.... it is so great to watch the kids playing together!
Tonight, I had dinner with my college roommate, Sam, and her kids.... it is so wonderful seeing her and her kids have grown so much since last year! With Sam living out of state, I take any opportunity to see her if she is nearby. We are already talking about how we might need to have a girls' weekend away next year to actually have complete conversations! We had a delicious dinner at Mellow Mushroom and then took the kids to Chick-Fil-A to get out some energy before bed and had a little ice cream for dessert! As you can see from the picture below.... the kids were the best for picture purposes when they held ice cream cones in their hands!
